IIRC the numbering for the users is not the same in different
distributions. Ubuntu (and all other Debian-likes) do start the user
numbering at 1000, and I remember my old Madrake (now Mandriva)
started it at 500, so I didn't have permissions to use my old /home.

I worked around it creating a new user, then moved over all my /home
to the new user. Maybe this is your problem, some SuSE user could
probably tell if the numbering is different.
